3 Signs you need to replace your windows.
If you’ve noticed a surge in your energy bills or struggled to see clearly through your windows, it’s probably time to replace them. If you’re still debating whether or not a replacement is necessary here are three undeniable signs it’s time to replace your windows:
Feel for a breeze coming in at your windows. You might also see your curtains or blinds moving about often.
Fogging or condensation on the glass.
This usually means the seals had failed, allowing moist air between the glass panes. The moisture built-up within can lead to further damage such as rot, which will occur much faster in humid climates such as Houston.
Rot or mold on the wood: If you see signs of decay such as dark spots, or significant peeling in the wood, it’s liking rotting. This is a health hazard as much as it is an eye sore. Cracks in the glass are less secure as well as less efficient. Weak glass will leave your home more vulnerable to outside threats such as burglars or even flying debris in a storm.
If you are experiencing any of these issues, you should replace your windows sooner rather than later. Insufficient windows are not only unattractive, they’re insecure and counter-productive to internal air regulation.
